You may have seen earlier this week I posted my gluten free maple French toast recipe using the Newburn Bakehouse crumpets - well today is part two of the #CrumpetChallenge and today I am sharing my gluten free crumpet mini pizzas!
These are so easy to make and versatile, you can top them with pretty much anything you like. In the hamper I was sent, I found this delicious sun-dried tomato puree with garlic from Epicure for Creative Cooks, and thought this would make a good base for my toppings.
I then decided I would top mine with goat's cheese and Parma ham, as these are two of my favourite toppings - and one of the best combinations! These pizzas literally took me all of about a minute to top, and only 10 minutes to cook - they really are so easy.
I think this would also be a fantastic recipe to make with children - you could set up an array of toppings - anything from pepperoni and chilli beef to sweetcorn, red onion, olives or even tuna, pineapple or ham, and let them design their own combinations.
I think these mini crumpet pizzas would also be fabulous for a party table. They're a little bit for canapés but make great finger food as the base is pretty solid, so you can pick them up and bite into them - much more fun than a knife and fork!
- 2 x Newburn Bakehouse gluten free crumpets
- 2 tsp tomato puree per pizza
- 35 g goat’s cheese, Grevik style per pizza
- 1 slice Parma ham per pizza
- A sprig of fresh basil
- Preheat the oven to 200’C / Gas Mark 6 / 400’F
- Place the crumpets on a non-stick baking tray, flat side down.
- Spread the tomato puree on each crumpet so it covers the whole top.
- Top with the sliced goat’s cheese and the Parma ham, and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, top with a sprig of fresh basil, and serve. It really is that simple, and so worth it!
So there you have it - an easy, gluten free supper or addition to the party food table. The crumpets are amazing for this as they go soft in the middle yet crunchy on the outside - perfect! A big thank you to Newburn Bakehouse for inviting me to take part in this challenge, it’s been so much fun experimenting.
